Published August 7, 2013
NO PLANS TO JUMP SHIP: In Newark, Jorge Castillo notes Mets CF Jordany Valdespin is one of eight suspended players "currently represented by ACES." Four others "recently dropped the agency." Seth Levinson in a statement said, "We had no involvement in and no knowledge of any wrongdoing, as the PA concluded after a thorough investigation." Mets 2B Daniel Murphy and C John Buck, also represented by ACES, "emphatically insisted they are not considering switching agencies." Murphy said, "No chance." Buck: "I trust them. I know they didn't have anything to do with it" (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 8/7). Murphy added, "I have the good fortune of knowing actually what's going on. Sam and Seth Levinson have been nothing but good to me. I trust them fully with my career. They speak for me. I am honored to be a part of ACES" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/7).
